New UL Benchmarks.com Processor Profile benchmark added to HWBOT Processor list


Ul Benchmarks released a new type processor benchmark last week, an add-on to the existing 3DMark series. What makes this new CPU Profile an interesting benchmark as it not only tests the single and max core capability (like the Cinebench and Geekbench benchmarks), but also runs 16-8-4-2 configuration tests.

We have currently added only 2 variants to the Beta Processor benchmark list:

The Verification Screenshot remains according the standard Processor rules plus a VALID UL Benchmarks verification link are required for correctly submitting at HWBOT.

Depending on popularity we can increase the number of benchmarks to 16-8-4-2 configurations but this might inflict weird rankings, hence why we decided to stick initially to the current 2 Profile versions.

Max1024's History of Competitive Overclocking featuring Ian aka 8pack Parry

  • review
  • 0

Max1024 has just released a new article in his History of Overclocking series. This time featuring UK's finest Ian Parry aka 8Pack. This is part1 of maybe one of the most controversial overclockers in the scene. The article is in Russian, therefore Google translate is your best friend ofc :)

(click picture to go to the article)

Professional overclocking did not immediately enter Ian Parry's daily life. Before starting his professional career as an overclocker, 8Pack was a professional bodybuilder and his daily routine was connected more with training in the gym and playing sports. Later he began to work in this direction as a personal trainer.

In an interview with kitguru.net, Ian Parry shared the numbers of his physical activity while he was preparing for the competition. “Usually, when I competed in bodybuilding competitions and prepared, I squeezed about 8-10 repetitions of a barbell with four pancakes on each side (about 185 kg, including the bar), squat with five pancakes on each side, with a bar it is about 220 kg , did about 6 of these reps. Press from the shoulders - 60 kg with each hand, and so on...

Thanks to the great turn up last time, we continue the G.Skill Tweakers Contest with Stage 2, featuring PYPrime 2B. This memory benchmark is developed by overclocker Monabuntur and integrated by Mat in his BenchMate benchmarking tool.



Stage 2 will run from the 1st of May till the 31st of May 2021 in 2 seperate classes: one for ambient overclockers and another dedicated one to the subzero overclockers.

Below you can find the specific competition pages and forum threads for each class:

The official competition background by DaQuteness can be downloaded here (click). A small installation guide and tutorial how to submit can be found in each of the above mentioned forum threads.


Prizes for both the Ambient as the Extreme category Stage 2 winners are a G.Skill TridentZ Royal 32GB 4000C16 Dual Channel memory kit.

Good luck and have fun!!

Who else than Roman Hartung aka Der8auer would break the highest graphic card frequency ?

Previous records were achieved all on nVIDIA graphics cards and reached frequencies just above the 3GHz mark. While testing the "unlocked" AMD 6900XT Powercolor Liquid Devil Ultimate he reached, without any modifications on the card, an insane 3225MHz while looping Test 1 of UL Benchmarks TimeSpy.

Roman shared this "unlocked" bios for the 6900XT card series, but use at your own risk!

Obijuan83 grabs first spot in the Apprentice League

  • review
  • 13

Obijuan83 from Greece dethrones Romenian legend Poparamiro in the Apprentice League.

For those unaware about the Apprentice league it ranks all the subzero overclockers using chilled water up to dry ice (-78°C). Compare it with the F3000 versus Formula 1, the latter could be best be compared with the Extreme league.

Obijuan83's real name is Nikiforos, born in Greece in 1983. In his daily job he's a General Surgeon,  but at nite he tortures hardware to the limits on his self made Single stage cooling units.

The Obijuan83 nick name was derived from his own personal spelling of the Star Wars character Obi-Wan. The number 83 was related to his birth year. Do we need to mention Nikiforos is a huge Star Wars fan.

Nikiforos performed his first overclock way back in 1997 on a Pentium II 400@497. In 2005 when studying for Doctor in Thessaloniki, he joined the Greek Team of Outofspecs.gr. A small team not only with a cool name but also with members like Unseen, Eleven, Hadji and Doom. Nikiforos is the one in the middle just below Vincent Lucido. He left the scene 2 years later. However in 2019 Obijuan83 made a return to the OC scene at HWBOT now with Hellas Overclocking Team. He especially wishes to thank Kostasandr, Tasos, Varachio and George O/C for the support to get him back up and running. Now I myself still remember pulling dozen of his scores as they were indeed done with the old school way of verification. 

This come back was his biggest challenge, as he no longer had a fan or even a spare memory stick, thus starting totally from scratch. After a lot of hardware hoarding and studying over the years, he now even makes his own Single Stage units. The HWBOT Discord users are for sure aquainted with the build logs of his little cooling beauties.

We asked him of his most rewarding score at HWBOT and he picked the 3DMark03 GeForce 7800 GTX score.

To get to the top of the Apprentice ranking, Obijuan83 focussed mainly on benching 2D for years. However lately he's popping up at the front page too with some strong 3D submissions.

He's a big fan of Intel's LGA775 & LGA1155 socket. He likes modern hardware too, but finds it less challenging to get HWBOT Boints with the latest expensive hardware.

Not only his Single Stage units are neatly build, also his daily setup received lots of attention.

He would love to see more people join the OC scene and make more people get hooked to this hobby. He appreciates the makeover HWBOT is going through this year and hope it will host more competitions amongst the different leagues. Well I can't tell everything yet , but there will be a lot of fun compos ahead in the upcoming months to keep you busy Nikiforos!

HWBOT New Style Rules

  HWBOT 2021 NEW STYLE RULES  

Another small step has been taken after the redistribution of the Global points last week. The New Style HWBOT rules are up in the benchmark list:

2D Benchmark list (click to open)

3D Benchmark list (click to open)

Memory (click to open)

Reference Frequency (click to open)

Disk Benchmark list (click to open)

Major goal was to simplify the rules, so they would be more accessible from Rookie to Elite level Overclockers.

    • No more distinction will be made between bus clockable or non bus clockable setups. 
    • Each benchmark has now properly listed OSses which are allowed, in regards of the hardware used
    • Most rules include the Benchmark download links wherever possible
    • Some benchmark require newer versions of the software: eg X265 Benchmark has been updated to v2.3 (HPET only)
    • New screenshots have been made according the latest rules
    • ...


HWBOT 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme

Version:

Latest version & Systeminfo 5.32+ (enabled)

Windows Limitations:

No Windows OS limitation

Verification required:
Via verification link & screenshot (click for example)
Verification screenshot
contains:

Benchmark window and result details visible
CPUZ tab for CPU and memory (V1.94+)
GPUZ tab for GPU and Sensor (boost clocks)
Windows taskbar must be visible
No screenshot clipping or cropping

Verification link:

Verification link required

Changelog/restrictions:

Nov 30, 2020: initial release

Benchmarks which don't have the new Rules will be phased out as there is no more support or a newer version was released that completely messes up the existing ranking, a perfect example is Maxxmem.Other Benchmarks like the "with BenchMate" will be merged in the future.It is clear we are running out of memory specific benchmarks. We already highlighted the Maxmem issue, also AIDA64 is a nitemare, as the developers change the output with each new release version. So any ideas of a proper memory benchmark are welcome.

Similar benchmark is lacking for Storage. We will release the AS SSD 2.0 version, but there must be be other quality storage benchmarks out there, with of course proper support from its developers.I opened a forum thead to discuss the new rules, chime in if you have any tips, spot errors (yes I'm only human too) or want some stuff to be added/removed.

The old rules are still visible via the benchmark itself, this in case there should be a debate or you want to crosscheck stuff. End of next week this link will be updated to the new rule set.
